Greenwood Cemetery in Orangeville is going to be getting another monument installed ahead of Remembrance Day (November 11) this year.

Mayor Sandy Brown brought forward a notice of motion during Orangeville Council’s regular meeting last Monday (June 28) notifying councillors that at their July 12 meeting he will be bringing forward a motion for the monument.

He noted that the local Legion has been working on this project for three to four years and finally has the funding to move it forward.

Funding approved by Orangeville Council for the monument in a past budget totals $5,000 and the Legion will be kicking in $7,000.

Mayor Brown added that there’s also some private and corporate donations that will be kicking in some funds to cover the remaining balance of the project.

A full report and subsequent motion regarding the monument will be brought forward at Orangeville Council’s next meeting, which is slated for Monday (July 12).
